Frits Post receives Visualization Career Award

We are proud to announce that Frits Post received the IEEE VGTC Visualization Career Award. At VisWeek 2011, the annual IEEE Visualization conference held 23-28 October in Providence, RI, he received his award. With this award, the international visualization community recognises his outstanding contributions to the research field, and flow visualization in particular. In his acceptance speech, Frits briefly discussed his 20+ years in the visualization field and expressed his gratitude for great collaborations in several organizational committees, and for the PhDs he supervised from 1989 through 2011. Earlier this year, Post also received the Eurographics Honorary Fellowship from the European association for computer graphics. Frits Post, now officially retired, indicated he will continue to visit the Computer Graphics and Visualization group at Delft University of Technology regularly to advise on ongoing research.
